  • Are you a heretic or a believer? Will the Burning Crusade be hot or just luke-warm?
    Those crazy bananas at our World of Warcraft site have posted a great article that takes a look at the upcoming Burning Crusade expansion. How will this expansion affect you, or will it? Find out in, "Thoughts on the Burning Crusade: How Will It Affect You?".

    " But as the future of the Game shifts before us, I realised that by raising the level cap an extra 10 levels, it will change the face of the (medium-end) game as we have come to know it. It will seriously affect many in-game aspects that few have considered. "

  • Sonatas with shotguns.
    GamersInfo has posted anAuto Assault Preview.

    " At GenCon SoCal 2005, I had the opportunity to talk to producer Steve Snow from NCSoft for the up and coming MMO Auto Assault. He took me through what the game had to offer so far. At first blush Auto Assault has a lot to offer and will be one of the most unique persistent worlds created for the MMO market. "

  • It might look just like this...or nothing like it.
    Turbine has posted some new Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar concept art on the official site.

    " These are two of several styles of armor found in LOTRO, as worn by a Man of Eriador. (In the game, players can wear armor designs from another race, if they so choose. Hobbits, being peaceful folk, have not developed an armor style of their own.) However, armor takes skill to wear effectively, and only certain classes will have the appropriate skills for some armor-types. "

    " Due to the massive changes recently implemented within the Star Wars Galaxies (SWG) Mmorpg, we felt it was necessary to update our review to reflect the changes brought out by the New Game Experience (NGE). We do hope that this review will provide you with the information needed. Also, I will refer to the combat upgrade (CU) along with the NGE. In the last 6 months, SWG has done multiple changes to the game and we’ll try to be as clear as we can. "

  • If you looked like a bat and had super powers you would be a villain too.
    About.com has posted their review of City of Villains. .

    " Ever since the release of City of Heroes last year, people have been leaping tall buildings in a single bound, outpowering locomotives, taking the law into their own hands, and exploring their alter egos as virtual superheroes. With the launch of City of Villains, NCSoft and Cryptic have made good on their promise to let you play the anti-hero. No more coming to the rescue of purse-snatching victims, this time around you will be robbing banks, carrying out hits for the mob, and pummeling everyone that gets in your way with a disregard befitting a criminal. "

  • GameSpy rolls for initiative.
    DDO is still in the "hands on" phase of previewing (followed by the "OMG roxxz0rz!" preview phase, which is followed by the "preview" preview phase... something like that), and GameSpy doesn't disappoint.

    After all, what better genre than the massively multiplayer online role-playing game to bring the "role" back into what usually becomes merely an endless treadmill of players searching for the bigger, better magical doodad? Having been lost in the D&D Online beta for about three days now, I'm seriously impressed at how well Turbine is translating not just the mechanics, but the very "feel" of classic D&D gameplay to the MMO format.

    No dice bag needed to view GameSpy's "hands on" preview of Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach.
